TECC64: Two Tough Challenges!
Good morning! I hope you are all having a glorious Friday! I loved being able to sleep in a little this morning after a long and stressful week.
The sketch that Taylor has for us this week is really fun and simple. I wanted to use it for the Verve Release color challenge so I pulled out a piece of my Cosmo Cricket Everafter dp because we all know that I can't create a card without designer paper! :) The color combination that we were supposed to use was light blue, soft yellow, and soft brown. I decided that since So Saffron and Baja Breeze matched my dp, I would use those two colors as well as Kraft. Little did I know just how much of a challenge I was creating for myself! For some reason, I struggled to get a look I was satisfied with. I poked and prodded at this card until finally I decided it was cute enough. It's definitely not one of my favorites but I don't hate it either. The final touch that finally satisfied me was the sponging around the edges. I am just amazed at how much life it can bring to a card! For the stamps I decided to pull out my Verve set called Serenity and use the sentiment "Just Because" from my Fluttering By set. I also added some cute rhinestones, stickles, and ribbon as some extra embellishments.
Make sure you stop by Taylor's blog to see today's sketch. Taylor has also picked Sandra MacLean for this week's featured sampler! Check out her blog too!
